Winemaker's Notes:

If you enjoy Cabernet Sauvignon, you have got to try this wine! A pure, expressive Cabernet, it has an elegance and complexity not often found at this price range. Try a bottle and prepare to be impressed. Think of it as a baby Ch. Montelena or Dominus Estate.

This complex and full-bodied 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon is an exquisite blend from five unique vineyard sites in the Columbia Valley. The multiple layers of chocolate, red-currant, and plum explode on the palate, finishing with hints of spices and herbs from the French oak. Barrel-aged for twenty months, this wine displays intense dark berry fruit and a full-bodied character that Cabernet lovers cherish. It is our pleasure to present to you this memorable Cabernet Sauvignon.

"It's bright and generous, with ripe berry and dried cherry flavors at the core, under a layer of spicy oak, melding nicely as the flavors persist on a solid finish. Drink now thorugh 2006."
